- WJHO signed on
in September 2008. The format was southern gospel music,
provided by SRN's Solid Gospel satellite feed. The
station received a permit to increase power from a new tower site
well north of Alex City in 2009 and modification to that permit for
less power from a greater height in September 2011. In the
spring of 2012 they received a third modification to increase power
from 5,500 watts to 10,500 watts vertical and put that facility on
air right before summer. In September 2012 the format flipped
from gospel to contemporary Christian music with the Salem CCM
satellite format, as "Praise 89.7". The owners cited a lack of
listenership support for the change. In June 2013 the station
received a permit to effectively double power while reducing height
by about 10 feet. It also includes a different directional
antenna pattern, which should allow for improved coverage around
Sylacauga and Childersburg. That facility went into use in
early April of 2014.
format change occurred in April 2014, with the station flipping to a
more upbeat Contemporary CHR/Urban Christian format by Take Back The
Airwaves Ministries, known as "Revocation Radio". TBTA
acquired the license for the station in May, 2016.
